About Our Project
The CoDesignS ESD project is focused on supporting educational institutions from all disciplines embedding Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in curriculum design and delivery supported by learning technologies. The project collaborators comprise academic staff, students and educational consultants working for different organisations of The United Nations. They represent an extensive global network of ESD champions.
The CoDesignS ESD Toolkit provides an easy to implement pedagogic method for embedding Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in the curriculum using a co-design and co-creation approach. The CoDesignS ESD Toolkit is based on UNESCO’s key competencies for sustainability (UNESCO, 2017), the recent ESD guidelines published in the UK by QAA and Advance HE (2021) and the original CoDesignS Learning Design framework (Toro-Troconis et al., 2019; Lewis, 2020).
The CoDesignS ESD Toolkit has been designed by Dr M. Toro-Troconis and a team of experts from The American University of Sharjah (AUS), UNESCO IESALC and The Open University. The AUS team is leading the evaluation of the Toolkit. AUS will co-host the Learning Design and ESD Bootcamp in English with The Open University and Anglia Ruskin University in 2022 in parallel with UNESCO IESALC hosting the Bootcamp in Spanish. The Toolkit will be released in October 2021 when the Learning Design and ESD Bootcamp is launched.
